Hi All
Is any one having problems with false positives with the latest Avast update?

aswclear5.exe, which is the avast uninstaller from their own site, cannot be downloaded and
hpqkygrp, which is part of HP's scanner software is removed and the HP program cannot be run!

Oops, just ran a full scan and it came up with
aswclear5.exe as malware. I have reported a false positive.

This was detected on my program backups in my external drive,I have added it to Exclusions

That uninstall file has been there for some time. It is only since the last update that it has been flagged up.

It was fine on our vista machine so I think it may be just XP?
